Those Dino Jersey's were a joke.

I like red, white and black, it looks nice.
Plus it's pretty much Canada's flag colour. Makes sense.

i would prefer a jersey change over the name, Raptors has built a brand,

i just think its time to change it up and add some new energy to the raptors

no rookies this year to get excited about so why not i've been wishing the changed it for a while at least three years

Three years ago they introduced the black Jersey's. But yeah, I concur with this sentiment. Not a complete overhaul but some changes to the uni's is in order IMO. Also do something with court as well. And I have always wanted theatre lighting too. Lol

Tim Leiweke on his ambition to rebrand this team

Quote:
Has given a lot of thought to this – Spent an entire day with Stern/NBA from a basketball, business and image standpoint – Clear that all of Canada doesn’t support the Raptors; they are Toronto’s team, but not Canada’s team – This needs to change – The Raptors should reflect Canada in their image and branding for the upcoming 20th anniversary of this team – 2016 All-Star game is a must have for Toronto to have – “Toronto is not bidding on the 2016 All-Star game; Canada is"

Lol @ Huskies, further enforcing an image of an arctic cold tundra where the entire population lives in igloos.

Still need to attract free agents here people. A lot of these stars go on record to say they dreamed of playing for the Raptors because of players like Vince Carter etc. The brand is there.

Stupid to change the name. Although blue for me is always cool because its consistent with the Blue Jays and Leafs.

Couldn't agree more. What pisses me off most is TL saying this team has to be more Canadian looking.


Let's see:

- Canadian Maple Leaf on the court
- Red Uniforms
- Canadian flag on the back of the jersey's
- Arena called Air Canada Centre
- Canadian flag on our backboards

+ Everytime a player looks up at the jumbotron they see a massive Canadian logo.


^ I shudder to think about what more they'd want to do. Paint beavers and mounties on the court?

I suspect the name will remain the same, and hopefully the team will transition to just the claw logo, which is a really clean and marketable design.

Team colours might be adjusted slightly, but if they are angling for "Canadian" colours, the red and white probably stays, so it will be more of an adjustment than a change.

A court redesign would be good, and a more classic jersey style, but I don't see sweeping changes being made across the board.

Exactly. Not to mention it will be all for not when the NBA eventually reaches Vancouver again.

We're constantly trying to battle the different country/climate stereotype when attracting players. Why add fuel to that?
